Event photography with Mediabox

“Change a little, change a lot.”
It’s the motto of the Award ceremony I had the pleasure to photograph last Friday.

Change A Little, Change a Lot

Change A Little, Change a Lot

I was contacted by Mediabox last week to do the photography for this event. I didn’t know the company so I went and had a look at their website. And it turned out to be a very interesting business! They offer everything a modern business might need help with, like Marketing, Social Media, Design & Websites, PR, Event Management and communications training.

I was to take photographs for the PR and Press releases of the Accessibility Award Ceremony in the Millennium Forum Derry. So I arrived a little bit early and met the people involved in the organisation. It was very nice to meet some of the ladies and I was grateful to have a little time for a coffee and a chat.

The ‘Studio’ in the Millennium Forum has big black curtains. At first I was a bit disappointed by this, because I thought that it would make the photographs very serious and dark looking. Knowing that they would be printed in newspapers I was a bit wary of it. But when I took some test pictures I realized that I could make the subjects of the photos stand out. The black also gets rid of any distractions. So I slowed down my shutter speed to catch more colours and a bit of the ambient light.

The event kicked off and there were some speakers and 29 awards presented. Time flew by and before I knew it we were done. When I sat down for a bit of lunch I found myself in awe…..it’s been a long time since I’ve worked at an event that happened so smoothly!

You can see in the photographs what kind of event it was; upbeat, professional and inspiring. It was very rewarding work and it re-affirms my conviction that I have the nicest job in the world :-) . So a very successful day all round. Here are some photographs of the day, see for yourself and let me know what you think of them!
